'Not allowed to give exam wearing hijab..,' two Muslim girl students from Karnataka skip exam

Bangalore: At least two of the eight Muslim students who headed to the Karnataka High Court over hijab have decided to skip their second-year pre-university college (PUC) exams after being denied admission in the Udupi district. A video widely shared on social media shows two girl students - Resham and Alia Asadi - walking back from college.

Speaking to the media, Rudra Gowda, principal of Udupi Government Girls PU College, said, "Alia and Resham took their hall tickets this morning. However, he also said that the exam centres have been made random, so he does not know whether his students appeared for the exam or not. The PUC 2nd year exam started on Friday and the commerce stream students have their exams today (Friday). Gowda said some of the students who were involved in the agitation are from science class and their exams will be held on Saturday.''

In December 2021, at least eight Muslim girl students were denied entry into the class wearing hijabs. On January 1, the College Development Council (CDC) ordered a ban on hijabs inside the campus, in protest of which students sat on a dharna outside the college building (inside the campus). After which the Karnataka High Court had also banned the hijab in the classroom.
